Monstrous-looking fish found in ocean washed up on a California beach

A rare deep-sea fish washed up ashore at the California last Friday. The monstrous fish was found at Crystal Cove State Park's Laguna Beach. The fish was shaped like a football and bore teeth as sharp as glass.

The Crystal Cove State Park took it social media informed about the sighting. Some images were shared of the fish identifying it as the Pacific Football Fish. Further, the fish was identified to be a female. A long described post was shared written "...only females possess a long stalk on the head with bioluminescent tips used as a lure to entice prey in the darkness of waters as deep as 3,000 feet!" The described content added "Their teeth, like pointed shards of glass, are transparent and their large mouth is capable of sucking up and swallowing prey the size of their own body.”

It was a strange yet so much fascinating about the fish as she was a testament to the diversity of marine life lurking below the water’s surface and wondered about how much is still to be learned from our wonderful ocean.
